A playthrough of Nintendo’s 1992 platformer for the Nintendo Game Boy, Kirby’s Dream Land.

Kirby’s Dream Land was the first time we ever got introduced us to Kirby, and stands as an excellent first title in one of what has become one of Nintendo’s prime franchises, as well as one of developer Hal’s enduring hallmarks (even if it’s just one among many amazing games they produced, including the Mother and Smash Bros. games).

Things have changed a lot for the pink puff in the past twenty-five years. He was just as cute and cheery then as he is now, but in the original adventure he hadn’t yet gained his ability to take on powers by eating his enemies. He flies, he inhales, and he eats, but except for a few predetermined moments, those are the only means of protecting himself that he has.

It definitely makes for a simpler game, but not a worse one. The levels are varied and extremely well detailed. This was seriously of higher quality than most NES platformers for its presentation! The music is great, and though the game is short and easy, there is a hard mode included. Still, that didn’t stop me from beating the game within a couples of hours of playing for the first time, but I loved it nonetheless. The mechanics are spot on, it’s never frustrating, and it’s generally just plain old fun. Nothing wrong with that!

I think that this one is still my favorite of the entire series.

And the shout-out to the Lolo games on the second stage – super sweet.

  4. Game Boy's Kirby was so great.
    I want to travel back in time.

  5. My first gameboy game. A really true Dreamland.

  6. Can't believe it's been 30 years since I played this game. I remember every second of this. Almost made me cry for some reason. Thanks for uploading

  7. did you finish it in 20 minutes? as a kid i thought its a full week gameplay XD

  8. Forgot this game existed until i was reminded of it on HIGH SCORE

  9. A fantastic lunch-break game. Might not be a long one, but quality versus quantity and all that.

  10. yes funny game of my childhood i love the little kirby

  11. Wow, haven’t heard the sound effects in over 25 years and I recognize everything!!

  12. I’m here for the music… I played the crap outta this game on my old school game boy… incredible memories from great times

  13. i miss this game, i recently (5 months ago) lost my copy of it and have been missing it ever since

  14. Remember, This Game Is A Popular Rip-Off Of Puffy In Glecos Land.

  15. In this game, copy ability doesn't even invented

  17. Yes very deep childhood memories. Introducing my bird to all the cool sounds in this old school dope ass game. He will be repeating it all soon. Hahahahahah…thanks fo the upload. 👍👍

  18. Omg omg omg omg 😭😭💟💟😍😍😍😍😍😍

  19. POKEMON TYPE WEAKNESS/SUPER-EFFECTIVENESS ALERT (FIGHTING >>> DARK): The scenes where Kirby beats and destroys the enemies and bosses in above video explains why in pokemon franchises Dark type pokemon is weak to Fighting type pokemons/attacks (reason: Good guys/main heroes use battle moves against Evil creatures to beat them).

  20. Who would say that a simple game like this would turn out into a simulator game where you kill interdimensonal demons

  21. I played and replayed this so often on my gameboy I started getting audiotory hallucinations of the soundtrack when I wasn't playing in a quiet room AND I THOUGHT IT WAS AWESOME

  22. Godawful music. Didnt bother me back in the day though

  23. If there were to be a live action Kirby movie, you think it should “loosely” be inspired by the movie ET?
